If you had believed the weathermen a few days before the event it sounded like the temperature was finally rising and the sun might actually show its face. Well they got that one wrong. Pete Mahoney and Dave Twin were met by a strong wind and driving rain. The result board had plenty of DNS’s on it but at least both Sydenham riders finished. Pete recorded a very impressive 59.48 and Dave a 1.02.15. At time of leaving it looked like the winner was J. Stratton of London Dynamo.
